Hello, I just posted  boxed series. There are four books in the series, there were ISBN numbers on each of the books. But there was an ISBN on the Box. I just posted the number on the box, so people would know that it was a boxed set. But now I'm afraid I will only recieve one credit instead of four! What would you do?

You are right. If you use the number on the box, the set is only worth one credit. To get 4 credits, you have to use the numbers on the books.

If you want 4 credits than you need to remove the box set from your shelf.  If you want to send them out to one person than advertise them in the Book Bazaar.

I had a boxed set of the Spiderwick Chronicles. Five books in all. No way was I going to get one measley credit for it.

I ditched the box and swapped them individually and got 5 credits.

Everyone happy and problem solved!

If you want to send the set together with the box and get one credit per book, then post in the Book Bazaar what you have.  Someone can buddy you the credits or you can post each ISBN individually to your shelf and that person can request them all from you.

Leaving it posted by the ISBN on the box will garner one credit for the entire set.
